mr. to join us. president olague: on april 7th, we are having the discussion about treasure island. he has been everywhere in the city government. if someone like he could come and give us the expertise to the discussion, i just don't know what his availability is. in addition to mr. blackwell, if he has the time available, and others, so that we have a robust discussion about what this means. the physical project and these other issues are around public benefits. [crosstalk] >> i think that's fine, but it's like they are all in house people. it would seem that there might be some other expertise around who can look at it from a different perspective. i don't know who those people are. with a little searching around, i think there are outside consultants, somebody that has some perspective other than the redevelopment agency staff. >> since we are having a discussion on this and linda is starting to get nervous, i am talking to rich about getting someone from outside city government to talk to us on april 7th when you have informational hearing on treasure island. i don't know who

was written about in 2006. the program, it says, if i may quote, program using the tax identification numbers instead of social security numbers is similar to the program run by smaller lenders around the country that they distributed millions of dollars to undocumented imgrants over the past few years. let me show you how this all works. we were convinced by george bush and everybody else, the american dream was to have a house. that was the dream. so all the people in apartment buildings could haven't the american dream. some of them because they had bad credit or didn't have jobs to allow them to afford houses. remember how expensive houses used to be? those days aren't coming back so they didn't get a house so they couldn't have part of the american dream because of the big even bank. i have should put horns on the big evil bank. they wouldn't loan these people any money. what happened? the union and acorn, you know, with the baseball bats, along with the permission and blessings of the beautiful, beautiful people in washington. they said yeah, we'll back you up. these banks should give l
that will include a discussion of when the u.s. will hand over its lead role. french military officials say french pilot fired a missile at a libyan plane that just landed at a base in the coastal city of misrata. french jets, including some from the aircraft carrier charles de gaulle, seen here off libya, struck a libyan base 150 miles south of the coast. attacks in tripoli targeted a libyan military base depot. libyan state tv broadcast these images of the damage. and the african-american union has invited representatives from gadhafi's government and opposition representatives to talk in ethiopia's capital tomorrow. so far new york response from either side in libya. >>> we begin coverage with nbc news pentagon correspondent, jim miklaszewski. mik, what can you tell us about the incident involving that french fighter jet? >> reporter: u.s. military officials can't tell us very much. earlier today, members of that coalition on the american side said they had no evidence that there was a plane in the air or of any poe sentential shoot-dow. as we find out from the french, one of their war fighting
>> sure. >> steve: geraldo rivera. >> brian: enough said. >> steve: thank you for joining us. we'll see you back here tomorrow, sat time, same channel. upstairs to "america's newsroom." there is a fox news alert on word just in. the president will meet with his national security team today to review his efforts in libya. we are getting word of new air strikes. look at the damage they have done in tripoli. allied countries trying to defend innocent civilians and enforce the no-fly zone. this was the scene in benghazi, the second largest city in libya. that's rebel-controlled territory. many waving the flag in the pre-qaddafi era. where is that operation today? one of the many questions for us. i'm bill hemmer. welcome to heather. >> qaddafi supporters remain defiant. the foreign minister denying there are any military operations in misrata. bill: that's where they say snipers are shooting civilians. here is the qaddafi version. >> the situation in misrata is confined to a number of pockets of violence and snipers scattered in different areas of misrata. life is back to normal in m
it would not be cost-effective for the city to give us enough accountants to have every transaction posted reviewed by a live human being, we sample the pre approval at have the auditing function in place, especially on the financial audit portion to detect later. and all up in case after something has been detected, was this appropriately that? probably more so than cost savings, a financial audit has that in mind. it is the balance to our pre approvals as opposed to just maintaining a controlled environment within the city. supervisor campos: please continue. >> i think it might also answer some of your questions about whether we go through this list of technical projects, he will get a better sense of things we do and recognize a lot of them are not just analyses that have the potential to sit on the shelf. all lot of our engagements are working with department thought implementations may have committed to making the changes necessary to do that. i will go through these relatively quickly and you may feel free to ask me to questions at the end. we collect a fair amount of performance in
traffic control procedures. u.s. transportation secretary ray lahood calling for at least two air traffic controllers now to man overnight shifts. this after a controller at d.c.'s reagan national airport reportedly fell asleep and two planes couldn't get in touch with the tower after mid night just trying to land. both had to go in for a landing on their own. toes your headlines. >> five hour energy ran out and two planes had to do their own thing. >> i'm sure nothing's down there on the runway. let's cross our fingers. let's talk a little bit about what's going on right now. in libya, new video just in, one of qaddafi's bases reportedly destroyed by u.s. coalition air strikes. look at these pictures, showing a flaming wreckage overnight and qaddafi's compound in tripoli also reportedly targeted again and was struck. the commander of britain's royal air force says libya's air force no longer exists. >> so now that we also have an exclusive story that came to us, i think james rosen and jennifer griffin working on this together. essentially, there might be some break as we try to find o
defenders and about that resource question. they need us to tell them. that is why we are here today. that has got to be a part of the mission. so i support everything johnson said, but there is another the to keep in mind. this is the jury pool. the jury pool is constantly affected and infected by nancy grace, law-and-order. it is constantly being polluted -- i truly believe this -- by the media. it sounds silly but it is not. i really believe in the power of media to influence people. that is why i got in it. so we have to use it to our advantage. you have got to be in it to win it. if we are not controlling our image, someone else is. so you have got to start thinking about the way that the image of the public defender is going to be portrayed, either in dramatic television -- over which you will have a lot less control. or certainly, in news media. years ago, i got a phone call from a public defender in san francisco. he had a case receiving a lot of media attention, and he wanted me to come to cover the case for 20/20. some of his colleagues thought he was not to. what are you b
